JSt 381 Kabbalah: The Jewish Mystical Tradition

Surveys the origins and development of the Jewish mystical tradition set against the context of Jewish religious, social, and intellectual history. Topics include mystical visions in ancient Jewish texts, medieval Kabbalah and the Zohar, the Sabbatean messianic movement, Hasidism, and contemporary uses of Kabbalah. This is the same course as Hst 381 and may be taken only once for credit.
